A light clean crisp taste than can only be achieved with a Bohemian lager brewed in southern style.

Got a bottle of this on vacation in Charleston. Reminds me of good times.

Pours a honey color with a 2 finger head that fades quickly leaving no lacing.

Smell is very bready and almost sour. No hops at all.

Taste is lightly hopped and heavy on the bread. Not too much happening. Very much like a standard lager taste.

Mouthfeel is nice, gently prickly and medium-light body.

Drinkability is good. Its unlike what I usually drink so I could drink more than one.

Golden color with just a slight haze. Minimal white head that dissipated quickly.
Aroma of grainy, husky malt and earthy hops.

Taste shows the grainy, husky malt backbone. Earthy hop balance. Some little quirks in the flavor, but nothing too bad.

Mouthfeel is fairly good.
Something is a bit off in the aroma and flavor, but still quite drinkable.

Overall, a decent lager.

Big thanks to AKSmokedPorter for searching some SC beers out and hauling this up to Ohio!

Some dear friends brought me a sixer of this back from the Holy City of Charleston where the Ashley and Cooper rivers meet to form the Atlantic Ocean. Charleston is a picturesque city. This is a fine local beer.

Pours a nice pale yellow that is sharp and clear with fine persistent carbonation that feeds a pure white head that is rather short-lived.

Smell is rather minimal. Slightly fruity, slightly flowery hops with hits of soft hints of malt.

Taste is mild. There is a soft malt character, almost wheat like with a short bitter hop finish. The hops are very citrusy so I am thinking Oregon/California hops.

Mouth feel is crisp and light, very refreshing.

This is a drinkable brew. Wish it was available when I was at school in Charleston.

i got a 1/6th keg of this for my kegerator. i was excited for the local brew but was a bit let down.
appearance was good with a deep golden color
smell was decent with a floral aroma
the taste was a bit malty
mouthfeel was good with almost perfect carbonation, a bit too carbonated, but close
drinkability was very smooth

A very average beer, but good on a hot day, I am sure. Not much taste, either from the malt or the hops. Nothing poorly done or sloppy, just not much to be gained from this, either when it is first opened or as it warms. Still better than an American Macro, but just not as good as the better American Lagers, like a Stoudt's Gold or a Great Lakes Dortmunder.

consumed a six-pack during a recent trip to Charles Towne, review entered from notes

a: golden in color with slight white head

s: smells grainy, a little overly sweet but not bad, clean hop aroma but doesn't really stand out

m: low-med carb (needs more) light medium body

t: pale grain flavor with a clean hop flavor and light bitterness...pretty standard but not bad, finish could be cleaner

d: drinks easily, enjoyable in the heat

A - pours a hazy yellow color, white head that quickly dissipates
S - lightly malty, strong lager yeast and a touch of hops
T - similar to the smell. Dominated by the lager yeast.
M - light bodied, nicely carbonated and crisp
D - I could see this being a tangy summer party lager as a nice choice in a cooler with a few other ales. The drinkability for this to me goes up with the heat index and BBQ factor.

This would be a good camping beer. The beer is light with a thin head. The smell is like a mass produced beer with a sweeter ending. The taste is also like mass produced beer but without the harsh corn bite. The mouthfeel is smooth. I could drink this beer again. A sessionable beer.

Pretty average lager...not their best beer, but easy to drink and better than a bud light.
